Paris Saint-Germain boss Thomas Tuchel says Neymar is not the ideal captain even though he stressed he’s a ‘technical leader’.

Neymar impressed for the Ligue 1 champions on Saturday with a goal and assist in the 2-1 win over Angers.

The Brazilian captains his country but Tuchel does not believe he’s cut out to wear the armband for his club, with Marquinhos the normal skipper and Thiago Silva acting as deputy when needed.

‘For me, [Neymar] does not have the profile to be the captain with the armband,’ Tuchel said.

‘He is a technical leader and attacker.

I do not understand why everyone is talking about this thing.

We have Thiago Silva and Marquinhos, they are fantastic and we are not going to change.’
